Simple 'nudge' letters can boost school attendance, new research suggests

from The Seattle Times

Working with schools in Philadelphia, researchers randomly assigned about 28,000 students into four groups, two of which received one of two versions of a nudge letter: one that included a tally of how many days of school the student missed, and another that compared that tally to a class average. A third group received a generic message that absences, excused or not, make a difference in how much a student learns, while a fourth control group received no letter at all. In the families that received the nudge letters, chronic absenteeism rates fell 10 percent. more
